Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, surrounded by family, gave his victory speech Saturday night in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

He gave a special shout out to South Carolina’s Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster for his support and took a swipe at Nikki Haley for endorsing Sen. Marco Rubio.

“I will take him over the governor anytime,” he said. “Because we won!”

Trump hit one more target – the media pundits – before his official victory dance.

“A number of the pundits said, ‘Well, if a couple of the candidates dropped out, if you add their scores together, it’s going to equal Trump.’ These geniuses . . . they’re geniuses,” he mocked. “They don’t understand that as people drop out, I’m going to get a lot of those votes also.”

Trump invited his wife, Melania, up to the microphone to say a few words.

“He loves you, we love you,” she said.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, also expressed her thanks.

“The momentum since the beginning of this campaign has been unbelievable, and that’s because my father’s message resonates so deeply with so many people,” she said.

“My father is an incredibly hard worker, and he’ll work for each and every one of you.”
